MOODY'S PURPUCT VINDICATION.
Trial of cx-Congrcssman Moody
on the trumped up charge of cm
bending n letter from the tUwil rc
Stilted in n triumphant vindication
fbr the defendant. Mr. Moody un
masked the forces behind the jxr
sedition, which were shown to be
personal and business and political
enemies. The active movers ap
peared s H. L. Wilson mid J. C.
HoststIer, of French Co., The
ijnllas, working through the
Mnyses, Hd Mays, John Hall's as
sistant, being the tool used in the
district attorney's office.
Mrs. Conroy, the complainant,
was but nn instrument In the bauds
qTUiosc j)cople. On the stHtul she
testified that the prosecution was
not of her instigation, that she had
merely signed papers prepared by
Qthers and brought to her by Hos
tetler to sign. She also swore that
13d Mays liad cautioned her before
joing on the stand not to use any
nffrues if she could avoid it.
Ilefore the prosecution bad com
plctcd its evidence Judge Bellinger
took occasion to say that the pro
ceedings before the grand jury, by
which the indictment was procured,
were evidently very exceptional;
that Wilson had brought in circum
stances entirely independent of the
case under investigation, and ad
mitted to be innocent in their
character, in such a way as to
operate against the defendant.
,lAnd they were introduced for
that p'urpose," declared the Judge.
Commenting further on the testi
mony, Judge Bellinger snidjv
It thews that the proceeding bTar thl grand
Jury was exceptional and was hostile ami with,
out regard to the rights of the defendant.

.The verdict was written out by
Mr. Moody's counsel. Judge M, L.
Pipes and signed by Juror Ion
Lewis without leaving the box.
This case was one of the most
remarkable that ever was tried in
Oregon, not only as to the fictitious
and malicious basis of the indict
ment but also in the cleanness and
completeness of the defense. Mr.
Moody's triumph is perfect. The
case gave him the opportunity to
expose the source and motive of
a long standing hostility that ,1ms
been unceasing and unscrupulous.
Public opinion will do the rest.
Mr. Moody lias won n most notable
victory and his foes are confused
men believe in dancing, others do
not; but dancing in a public school
house is prohibited by law. Oct

be used only for purposes of public
education. This is particularly
true when, as tit llend, theic are
available balls to lw had. Kadi
budding townsite has a place nvuil

not take the religious and other
meetings there an.l leave the school
house in peace to sent its legiti

Bend children should be encour

school library, indeed, they will be
found moit entertaining and prof

too. Parents should see that the
books are not soiled by the children,

for good books, clean in couteuts
